For the week ending on 11/21/2021 | Vol. 74

What's buzzing, friends!

Do you know how many recipes there are for potatoes? No, don't tell us. We don't think We want to know. The point is, potatoes are a fantastic staple food with tons of delicious flavor. You can fry them, steam them, boil them, or even roast them. There are potatoes that are mashed or whipped, chopped or diced, or sliced thinly. If you buy them at the market you can get anything from small red potatoes to huge russets. Don't these things sound great? You can whip up french fries, potato salad or even some mashed potatoes. You can bake them with cheese, mash them with onions for some amazing latkes, or serve them with bacon. Potatoes... they are an integral part of our diet, that is unless you were in France in 1748.

It was the mid-1700s, France was in the middle of its seven year war, and the tuber, a.k.a. "the potato", was considered food that only livestock would eat. So widespread was the fear of the potato, that people even said it would cause leprosy.

As such this pariah of foods grew a negative following. Then 1748 the French government passed laws against the potato. It was even considered as cruel and unusual torture to feed them to someone.

Lucky for us, Antoine-Augustin Parmentier, a French army pharmacist, was captured by the Persians and fed only potatoes in prison. He has an interesting story as well, but the moral of this tale, he changed the history of the potato.

You can read more about this fascinating story HERE. But before you go heading off to bake your potato, scroll on down and check out all the articles you may have missed from D.Buzz this week!
